Will someone please take Bynum's keys?

This is getting ridicuous. 

TMZ reports that Andrew Bynum was pulled over in early December for "crossing a divider and driving on the wrong side of the road" while trying to pass a car. 

Oh, good grief.

This happened, in TMZ's words, "JUST DAYS BEFORE"  Bynum was pulled over and ticketed for having illegally tinted tail lights and no license plate... wait for it, and then after that pulled over going over 80 MPH in his Porsche.  This is after double-parking in a handicapped spot last July, and Bynum was ticketed for going 110 MPH in November of 2010. 

So to review.

Two speeding tickets.
Parked in a handicapped spot.
Illegally tinted tail lights. 
No license plate.
Drove on the wrong side of the road.

Look, if you want to say this has no impact on him as a basketball player, nor on his maturity as a teammate, that's fine. Maybe it doesn't. It certainly won't affect his play when he returns to the lineup Saturday against the Nuggets. But it's not exactly comforting to see Bynum repeatedly making the same mistakes. He's not getting into fights or criminal trouble. He's just committed a high number of unnecessarily violent fouls an has problems with driving regulations. 

But seriously, will the Lakers, Kobe, Mike Brown, someone get Bynum a driver? This is just absurd at this point.

No wonder Kobe Bryant takes a helicopter to games.

Does he think he is above the rules?
When you're young, rich, black and 7 feet tall, you pretty much are above the rules. As Richard Pryor once said in a skit when visited by a gov't bill collector, "if I had the navy marines behind me, I'd be a motherf***** too." Well, if I were Andrew Bynum, I'd be as big of a dick as possible too.

How is he able to drive. Someone take his license before he kills someone.

It’s amazing you have no problem spewing vile out against someone you don’t know.  I guess just being you is punishment enough.  Happy New Year.

The sad part is these guys who behave badly remain rich and continue to believe they are above the law. Too bad a consequence couldn't be like a 40 game suspension from the NBA for fools that behave badly and continue to behave badly. Hit them in their pocketbook.

Maybe this is a warning for Orlando: shop Howard elsewhere but don't move forward trying to build a winner around this guy who doesn't behave on or off the court. Howard to Dallas or Nets but NOT the Lakers?

Well said Cffl chump.  I thought i read Jerry Buss went after this guy and took a chance on him when no one else did because he was extremely intelligent, and would fit in well with what P. Jackson was doing.  He might be a good player when healthy, and he might be smart.  But the dude sounds like a grade A D-BAG and is your typical spoiled, self centered, professional who believes he is above everyone in this world.  And this punk may be smart but is seriously lacking sence, let alone common sence

Great comment  CFFL Chump.  It's too bad more people do not feel this way.

Anyone who calls this a "civil fraction" or not news worthy is just as big a part of the problem as Bynum ... and it is really frustrating to operate in society amongst these fools.

I think all MOST people want is for other people (professional athletes included) to be civilized, be considerate of others, obey laws, and do the small things that increase the quality of life for everyone.

No sense analyzing Bynum ... he is proving himself to be one of the bad guys.

This is completely absurd, it clearly demonstrates that he has no regard for rules. Does he think he is above the rules?

I'm pretty sure you don't need to be a leader or a great player to win championships or have a successful career as Bynum has already shown us.  You being from philly might need to read this a couple of times for it to make some sense.
